When jazz fans yet unborn debate questions like, "Who was the greatest jazz pianist, Bill Evans or Oscar Peterson?" I believe the contents of this CD will be offered as Exhibit A in making the case for Peterson.

-----

In May 1993, Oscar Peterson was dazzling the paying customers at New York City's "Blue Note" when he suffered a stroke. In the aftermath, it looked to be a career-ending disability -- the dexterity of Oscar's legendary, left hand had vanished.

But ten years later (in his mid-seventies) the pianist/composer was on tour again seemingly "good as new" - and wowing audiences in places like Japan. The night he performed in Osaka (a city with nearly the population of Canada,) my youngest son "Ben" (then teaching English and falling in love with his future bride) was in the audience, watching in starry-eyed wonder!

Ben had longed to see Oscar "live" (and was envious of his parents, who'd witnessed Oscar `alone together,' 20 years earlier, with guitar legend Joe Pass).

So . . . having been denied the pleasure of seeing his musical hero "in person" here in Canada, Ben was beside himself with joy -- as he described the concert by phone 12,000 miles away, next day. "I was the only `westerner,' in a sea of Japanese faces," he said, "and almost the first thing he played was WHEATLAND!!! I think he looked my way and smiled, as he introduced it!"

Well, Ben will be enthralled with the 9 minute "Wheatland" included here - the finest "live" rendition of this musical portrait of Canada's Midwest, featuring Oscar's best-ever trio alumni -- Herb Ellis on guitar; Ray Brown - bass, and Bobby Durham -- drums .

I play piano professionally, and I'm pretty good. But Oscar was just an animal. He played fast because he could, not to show off. Jazz is cluttered with players who just fire off plenty of notes with no meaning, but not this man. Of course he carried on Art Tatum's style, which is miles above me. I don't know of anyone who plays in this style anywhere near this level. I wish I could have seen him live.

One disk loads up on your Ipod without titles, only Track and Number. If this doesn't matter to you, then OK.
The music is still fantastic and the Telarc recordings are as usual, rich and full.

Another classic performer. Amazing speed on the keyboard however I could have done without all the violin sounds and simply enjoyed more of Peterson.

I was suprised that the sound quality was really not that great at all. Not one of his best efforts. Still he is awsome.
